Britain's Prince Harry and United States actress Meghan Markle will marry on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle near London, Kensington Palace said on Friday.

Markle will also spend Christmas with the British royal family at Queen Elizabeth II's private Sandringham estate in eastern England.

St George's Chapel is a Royal Peculiar, with the Dean of Windsor responsible only to the sovereign.

Kensington Palace released a statement via Twitter today.

Harry and Ms Markle have gone against tradition by choosing a Saturday.

Markle will become a British citizen, get baptised and confirmed ahead of the religious ceremony.

The upcoming holidays will be the best time for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to train Markle the ins and outs of being a full-time royal.

Netflix, after all, produced and promoted the movie, which is in the vein of an uplifting, unapologetically cheery Hallmark film. When you start thinking about the amount of data that's floating out there about you, it's better to not think about it.

Technically, Meghan will be a princess when she marries Harry but he may receive a peerage from the Queen when he marries, just as Prince William received the hereditary title Duke of Cambridge with Kate becoming the Duchess of Cambridge.

Their 16-month whirlwind romance blossomed when they met through mutual friends in London, and the pair have been nearly inseparable in recent months.

However, soon after she posted the congratulatory message, the special assistant to President Trump received heaps of criticism on the micro-blogging site, with some even accusing her of trying to "fish" an invite for the royal wedding. "It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together".

Harry proposed to Suits star Ms Markle during a cosy night in over a roast chicken dinner after a 16-month whirlwind romance.

The "Suits" actress will be spending the holidays with the royals and many understand that picking the best gift for the monarch might be hard for Markle.

The pair were secretly engaged earlier this month, and rumours a wedding was imminent stepped up a gear when Harry took Ms Markle to meet his grandmother the Queen for tea at Buckingham Palace.
